The Blank Sketchbook

A blank sketchbook lies at my feet
It stares at me curiously as I walk by
Knowing emptiness is some kind of defeat,
It waits for me patiently to decide
On words to entertain countless pages
On colors to paint and brighten stages...

It knows something exists there
In the creases of forgotten paper
And given enough time to adequately prepare
Something, becomes a skyscraper.
A monument to the lack of emptiness
A testament to the found happiness.

Patience knows no bounds,
So it waits as I continue on
Hoping that one day I make my rounds
The sketchbook awaits my return,
Because it has faith in me,
It knows that I can and will succeed.

Author Image Author Image I love reading the Word of God. With prayer God's Word reveals so much: from comfort to temperance, from perspective to affirmation. Digging into the depths of the Word, cross-referencing history, language and time differences, is a passion of mine. In March of 2015 I decided to go back through the Bible doing an in depth study on each section I read. Eventually I decided to share my journal of notes as I partake in this journey. I hope you are blessed by God and inspired to pursue a deeper relationship with Him. I love reading and learning about God, nature, and science. I am interested in how it all connects. The Creator's fingerprints are all over his creation. We can learn so much about Him and how we came to be by exploring the world around us. Join me as I explore the world and draw closer to the One who created it all.
